Christine is our SSF NYC Chapter Chair. Christine is an interior designer and Senior Associate at the New York Studio of NBBJ, a global architecture, planning and design firm that helps companies and organizations create innovative places. She enjoys collaborating with talented team members and has benefited from varied project experiences. With a broad base of knowledge gleaned from over 15 years of interior design experience on the east and west coasts, Christine focuses on designing stylish, healthy environments with modern sensibilities. Her projects incorporate energy efficient systems, daylighting, non-toxic materials, recycle stations and natural ventilation in all settings; whether a corporate, healthcare or hospitality project. Spaces with these sustainable aspects are less costly to operate, have a reduced environmental footprint and can make you feel more productive, less stressed and happier, because they are healthy spaces that cause no harm. She recently participated in the design and completion of the NBBJ office on 2 Rector Street in NY, which is targeting a LEED Silver rating. Her project, the Southwest Washington Medical Center won the 2007 Modern Healthcare Award of Excellence, the 2007 IIDA INawards Design IN Healthcare Honorable Mention, and was featured in the February 2008 issue of Interior Design Magazine.

Christine has a passion for getting involved. As Past President of the IIDA Northern Pacific Chapter, Director of the first INawards, and Graphics Coordinator for several IIDA Greenworldâ„¢ events, she contributed to connecting the design community in Seattle. Along with community and design, fashion and travel are true passions of hers. To her it’s more than just seeing sights, or shopping, it’s about inspiration, discovery and deep change. These interests have led her to become involved over the years with SSF, by partnering with them on IIDA Greenworldâ„¢ events and now as the SSF New York Chapter Chair and SSF Lifestyle Ambassador.
